No time to stand beneath the boughs, And stare as long as Tension-Free Cows



I'll admit this brought a smile to my lips, as I tried to envision the idyllic world that cows must have inhabited in erstwhile Brindavan with their favorite, divine cowherd, and also a slight sense of doubt about it's possiblity in today's world.

It reminded me of this poem.  (Ironically, a short one, well-suited for a quick read in today's fast-paced world!)


Leisure by W.H.Davies


WHAT is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare?—

No time to stand beneath the boughs,
And stare as long as sheep and cows:

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass:

No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night:

No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance:

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began?

A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.



Naturally, I had to try this ghee. Here's the verdict:

Plus Points -

  • Tastes authentic
  • Comes in a glass jar with a nice lid and a wide mouth
  • Organic

Minus Points -

  • Gummy texture and dull white colour ( - compared to those of Nandini, Britannia and Nilgiris, for e.g. that have a markedly golden-yellow colour with the solidified part being very granular. As in this picture of ingredients. Probably just a matter of my own current conditioning.)
  • Cost (expensive)
